Welcome to Iacono Research!
You have likely arrived here after reading something that I've written either at one of the many financial news websites where my work appears, or at my blog The Mess That Greenspan Made.
If, after reading my commentaries about oil, gold, or a variety of other topics, you've wondered how I invest my own money, here is where you will find the answer.
First the bad news - this is a pay site. The good news, however, is that for a relatively small fee, you will be provided access to a bounty of information in the subscribers' area including market research, market commentary, and most importantly, investment ideas based on my personal holdings.
The thought process is fairly simple. I spend a judicious amount of time researching and analyzing economic data and financial markets based on information and opinions from a wide variety of sources. I then formulate and refine personal views which result in writing commentary and making personal investment decisions, both of which are shared with subscribers.
As you may know from reading the blog, I have no formal training in economics, investments, or personal finance. This is viewed as an impediment to clear thinking when it comes to making sense of markets and investing wisely. My track record in recent years has been quite good - so good in fact, that my wife and I began a very early retirement a few years ago while still in our mid 40s.
An engineer by profession, with a keen understanding of human nature, my study of economics and financial markets began in earnest in the late 1990s - this is where it has led. I am self taught and self sufficient - analyst, writer, webmaster, marketer, bill-collector, and bill-payer. This is intended to be a long-term, one-man operation where the only items that will ever be offered for sale to the public are subscriptions to this service and books that I plan to write in the years ahead.
Please feel free to have a look around using the links above - FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), Approach, Biography, and Resources - to learn more about my background and the investment approach favored here.
If there are any questions that I can help answer, please send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
